About the Founders
We created this organization because we feel that essential workers need our support and appreciation. These are the people on the front lines who protect us and our children on a daily basis and we think they need to know how much we all care for and thank them for what they do for us every day. There are many organizations who honor our men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty and we wholeheartedly agree. While we agree that we should never forget the lives that have been lost, we also feel that we need to show our gratitude while they are still with us.
